My book club is in the throes of deciding which books to select
to read next year. We meet all twelve months of the year so we
need 12 books.
Your mission, “should you choose to accept it”, will be to choose
the 12 books YOU would select . . . the members have chipped in
with suggestions and we have a hearty list of 51 to choose from.
Which ones would you pick?
So that this doesn’t get too unwieldy, I’ll list 17 books each time.
If you choose 4 from each post, then we’ll have 12, won’t we.
I realize you might not be familiar with some—but go ahead and
humor me, play the game. If nothing else, maybe it will remind
you of a book you’ve been meaning to read.
